Tonight we’ve got an incredible double header at Morgan’s Pier. Indie punk stalwarts Ted Leo and the Pharmacists will play with newcomer Waxahatchee for the low price of free (though you must be over 21 for the event). Ted Leo and the Pharmacists released their incredible sixth studio album The Brutalist Bricks back in 2010 and it’s just as catchy as ever, featuring a musical combination of punk, rock pop and dub. Waxahatchee, the solo project of Kate Crutchfield joins the band to bring an acoustic punk element to the event. Her second album, Cerulean Salt, was released in March to critical acclaim and continued in her off-kilter folk-rock stylings from the past. It’s a combo you really don’t want to miss.

Although his fame has remained mostly a regional phenomenon, bringing him huge success in the UK, Paul Weller aka The Modfather will play Union Transfer tonight in support of his most recent album, Sonik Kicks, which was released last year. Gaining fame as a mod revivalist in his band The Jam, Weller soon moved on to form the soulful The Style Council and eventually a steady solo career. Through it all, he has never ceased to create incredible music that has brought him legendary status in the UK.
